Different Techniques to Treat Scoliosis

Physical Therapy for Scoliosis Patient's

Scoliosis is a condition which causes the spine to curve to the left or right. Up to 2 to 3 percent of Americans have scoliosis. It affects people of all ages, although more commonly diagnosed in children and adolescents. 

 

Symptoms of scoliosis can be a purely cosmetic, with noticeable misalignment, or cause mild discomfort or back pain. In severe cases it can cause serious breathing disruptions and may require surgery. The more severe the deformity or curvature, the more pronounced the signs and symptoms. With proper care and management, scoliosis doesn’t have to be disabling or noticeable.

 

In mild cases, Physical therapy can be used to retrain your body to function better with your particular alignment issues. Physical therapy can be used in conjunction with more aggressive treatments to augment results. Using specific exercises and stretches, physical therapy can help improve your range of motion and strengthen weakened muscles. Other treatments like electrical stimulation and ice and heat therapy, can be used by your therapist to relieve tension and back pain caused by scoliosis.
